My new Lange Comp 120s (with custom footbeds) leak and my toes are soaked at the end of the day. Doesn't seem right. Is this a common problem and can anything be done about it?

|Example of moisture build up in ski boots.
When ski boots get wet, many people suspect that their equpiment has sprung a leak. This is highly unlikely given the quality of boots manufactured today. What's more likely is that the moister us coming form inside the boot. Of all parts of your body, your feet have the highest number of sweat glands per square inch. Moisture is absorbed by the insulating material before moving in vapor form toward the shell of the boot. As vapor approaches the shell it meets cold temperatures and condenses. Over time the buildup in moisture reduces the boot's ability to insulate the foot, diminishing body temperature 25 times faster than air.
